New election, same result: Most incumbents win 2022 rematches – JP


Garbarino said in a tweet that Americans had sent a message that they’re “sick of one party rule in Washington,” even as his party largely underperformed expectations. “They are sick of living through crisis after crisis brought on by failed policies,” he said.

Other incumbents saw smaller margins but still held on. Democratic Rep. Matt Cartwright prevailed in another challenge from Jim Bognet, a political consultant and former Trump administration official. Cartwright won Pennsylvania’s 8th District by a 2.5-point margin, compared to a nearly 4-point win in 2020. He prevailed in his third straight election even though his district would have gone for Trump in both 2016 and 2020.

Democratic Rep. Susan Wild pulled off a win in a Lehigh Valley, Pa., district that became redder in redistricting. She eked out a 1.6-point win in the 7th District, according to the AP’s latest tally Monday, against manufacturing company CEO Lisa Scheller. Wild beat Scheller in 2020 by 3.6 points.

Democratic Rep. David Trone repeated his win against Republican Neil Parrott to represent Maryland’s 6th District, holding a nearly 4-point lead Monday. That’s down from a nearly 20-point win over Parrott in 2020.

Kean beats Malinowski

One incumbent facing a rematch didn’t pull off the win, as Democratic Rep. Tom Malinowski fell to former state Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean Jr. in New Jersey’s 7th District. Malinowski had bested Kean by just 5,329 votes, or 1.2 points, in 2020, but his district picked up more Republican-leaning areas this year. This time, Kean won by more than 4 points.
